FWIW, I like to start from an "svn export" of the release candidate tag so
that there's no need to exclude version control files.

OK, good enough.  I'm not going to perform a low-level audit.  For this
release, I trust the IP clearance process and the Mentors who supervised it.
For future releases, the IP integrity of this codebase will be the ongoing
responsibility of the AOO development community, and from what I can tell you
folks have the expertise, the incentives, the desire and the habits to serve
as good stewards.

In my view, the process by which this prelimary release candidate was
assembled was satisfactory.  Once the RAT report passes and once the
LICENSE/NOTICE files have been worked out according to the plan proposed by
Oliver-Rainer Wittmann on legal-discuss, I expect to vote +1 on a true AOO
release candidate unless someone else catches something I missed.
